Pregnancy: Weeks 31-34

This month you feel (and probably look) huge! Your baby is putting on more fat layers and weight every day—about half a pound a week! In fact, she'll gain more than half her birth weight in the seven weeks before delivery.

A human fetus at 34 weeks. At this time your baby will weigh approximately 5 pounds and be about 16 inches long from head to toe.

Week Number 31

Week Number 32

Week Number 33

Week Number 34

In the eighth month you might feel this pregnancy idea is getting old. It's time to move on to motherhood! Be patient and give your baby just a little more time to plump up before he makes his grand entrance.
